Welcome, to my second generation resource manager!

If you're familiar with my old resource manager, you'll be pleased to hear that a lot has changed in my newest version!

Highlights
  • Automatic Entity Retrieval through constraints! No wiring required!
  • Automatic Entity Linking to resource node! Virtually any entity that uses RD3 will be automatically linked to the resource node!
  • Support for Mining! You can just do metal, or add in the extra devices for PN-Fuel as well!
  • Support Energy! Automatically generates it, provided you have the required devices.
  • LS Core support! Makes it so you don't freeze to death.
  • Revised Resource Equations! Enjoy more resources in less time!
  • Automatic Water Pump Linking!
  • Hash Check!
  • And more!

File Checking has been disabled due to compatibility issues with Gmod13. Will put back in when fixed.

Please report all issues to this thread, or contact me on Steam

The new text file below is a work in progress and will only support basic lifesupport. However, I can pretty much guarantee that it will work.

    Hmm, it's got to be due to a garrysmod/wiremod update, because that part of the code has not changed one bit.

    I'll look into it tomorrow.

    WireMod's been acting weird for me too, the Laser Pointer Reciever not working and stuff.

    As I said in the other thread. E2, Wiremod is messy.

    Server sending ERRORS in console.

    Map changing is not working. Scoreboard HUD is not working. Server is crashing from time to time.

    Completely unrelated, lol. I updated Wiremod last night - and when I rejoined the server after a crash, the Lua Cache was fine so I didn't bother syncing it.. Apparently I was wrong, haha. Although the crashing is strange, not sure what's up with that.

    Wiremod has been updated, so this may have been fixed.

    According to my code, there's absolutely no way this could happen, so it was a bug(which seems to be resolved).

    If this problem pops up again, I'll just add in some check variables to prevent it from spamming.

    Please let me know if you are having any other problems!

    This is probably a known issue by now, but at random times your e2 detects only the support energy systems and nothing else, even though i have complete mining and basic LS hooked up. Any idea why?

    I'll see if I can iron out a fix later today, just heading out the door now.

    Code updated. Hotfix is untested, let me know if it's still having problems.

    how do I make it actually turn stuff on? right now it links stuff and thats about it other than breaking the exchangers so they use nothing ^^
    oh and it doesnt change any values or wire anything. is it meant to wire itself to all the generators?
    I have solar panels on my ship to make it start but now I just use this and the steamsource generator for crazyness.
    I mean, this links then steamsource makes rich- but you need to add a list of what's needed for it to multiplier stuff.

    It needs energy, after it has a small amount energy it does everything automatically.

    can you post the things you need for, say, basic life support and support energy production? I have found them but if there is bvasic there has to be advanced >:)

    btw when terraforming I use the steamsource dynamo because this doesnt change a planet at all.
  • NinjrKillrNinjrKillr Posts: 192Registered
    Basic: Water Pump, H2O Splitter, Heavy Water Electrolyser, Steam Turbine.
    Support Energy: All above, Ship Core (link to node, pass wire value to enable production), OR Fusion Reactor (iirc they still generate sup en, however this may be changing soon)

  • OverloaderdaveOverloaderdave Posts: 87Registered
    so... thats it? it doesnt support anything else?
    I mean, really... btw once it fills up first time will it stay forever due to water... because steam generator seems to make water and steam
    but no matter where I go I always have full water-which ls device is generating free water power and air?
  • NinjrKillrNinjrKillr Posts: 192Registered
    None of those LS devices are generating free anything. This E2 is designed to have the most efficient resource generation, therefore it makes use of all of the above-listed generators in order to maintain max resource production for max amount of time. There is an amount of loss, as the Steam turbine isn't fully efficient in returning water.

    As stated in the OP, it supports the following devices in addition to basic life support:
    • Support for Mining! You can just do metal, or add in the extra devices for PN-Fuel as well!
    • Support Energy! Automatically generates it, provided you have the required devices.
    • LS Core support! Makes it so you don't freeze to death.

    As for the title "Basic Lifesupport", there really aren't that many things you need to make the most efficient setup, adding more would just over-complicate it for me, as well as the end-user. It's simply meant to serve as a foundation for you to add other systems that you require on your ship.

    With the new mining changes coming out soon, I fully expect my E2 to break, so bear with me when that happens.

    If you have any further questions, please consult the instructional comments within the e2 code before posting here, as I think I covered most of the stuff you've asked in there already.

    You need to give it power and a water pump that is in water or it won't be able to do anything. It doesn't magically generate anything.

    Ive done this and when I go into space it doesnt work also it doesnt automatically split water or condense steam

    I wasn't aware this still worked at all.

    Well then does anybody have one that works then?

    Weird It works when On the ground?

    Ok it works completely fine until I weld It to my ship?
  • Mouldy_TacoMouldy_Taco Posts: 133Registered, Moderator
    I should have a working version on my other computer. I'll try and get it up here tomorrow.

    Thank you much appreciated I think it breaks when you dupe it as when I unlink everything after duping, delete the chip, and then place the chip down it works somewhat well although a working version would be appreciated.

    it appears your e2 doesnt work on server 2 now, but works perfectly on server one...
    apparently, server 2 doesnt allow the e2's line to get the resources stored.

    Server 2 is horribly out of date right now, almost everything needs to get updated when someone with access gets a chance to go put the latest stuff on it. Really the only thing that isn't outdated is probably Garry's Mod itself.
